I jumped into the water today with the Iphone in the shorts. I apologize for the inconvenience. Please contact me via email for the time being. I will do my best to have a phone by tomorrow afternoon.
Today started out pretty slow for us. We started on a deep hump and didn’t so much as get a bump. We went shallow for most of the morning/early afternoon with limited success. (5 spinnerbait hits, but only one boated fish and a couple of bumps on a plastics that wouldn’t allow us to even come close to a hookset on them…..the ole hit and run) Soooooo we went to spot we had some luck on yesterday and presto they were there again. 15 minutes and 2 fish later things were looking up and we were pumped, then………
Google shit happens runner picture.
YEAH it skipped past a code red emergency and went straight to code BROWN. I finally get these fellas on a pile of fish and blame, game over. This was not a “bank” stop moment folks. Good news is that I made it to the ramp and made a successful deposit. Bad news is we didn’t have enough gas to get back to the spot. I have one tank gauge that is screwy and the same one has a vent issue that makes it appear full when pumping gas, but in reality it is not. I switched tanks this morning while running and saw half a tank as opposed to full and thought, “heck I can run South and back no problem on that”. I had no idea I would have had to make that run twice….lol. I felt terrible for these guys. The dang guide finally delivers and then has a $%^# happens moment, but that would not be the last shit happens moment on this day only this time not in the literal sense at least. We got a line wrapped around the prop and I jumped in to free it…….Iphone fail. Ugh. I hope Danny’s GoPro didn’t catch any of this.
Ahhhhhhhhh the life of a guide, lol. I have already taken 2 Immodium and plan on take 2 more before bed and in the morning. That #$%^ ain’t happening again.
I have these battle tested fellas again tomorrow. I have gone back and forth with the gameplan, but believe I have the winning one in place.
Oh and no Depends jokes either.
